Samsung is set to reveal its Galaxy Gear smartwatch next Wednesday, Sept. 4, in Berlin. But this weekend, we got a first look at the watch.

Here it is.

I love watches (I have several watches for different occasions and clothing styles), but this thing looks ridiculous. A three inch contraption shaped like a Galaxy phone strapped to my tiny wrist?

What?

No see, you're assuming they're out there because otherwise companies wouldn't be wasting their time developing these boondoggles. You admit yourself you're not aware of anyone who's ever expressed an interest in buying one.

Apple doesn't count: they could release anything and Apple fanboys would buy it. A cranial implant that requires 13/14 staples to attach it to the skull would fly off the shelves.

So you're admitting that there is a market, even if it's for the wrong reasons. We're on the same page, then.

There fixed it for you.

seriously, there are just s many (if not more) fandroids out there than fanboi's. To them the great god Samsung can do no wrong. If Samsung had retail stores, I'm sure they would become the same places of homage and worship as the Apple ones.

I wouldn't so sure about that. At least, fanboi are more loyal then samsung fans club. They can jump ship. Like, to Nexus, or Sony. And where ifanboi can jump to? ;)
